Singo Lodoyo USA, an Indonesian community specialized in performing Reog Ponorogo in the United States, had come out victorious last year in the US4th July Independence Day festival n Washington, DC.
On April 15, 2010 they once again amazed American and international audience at the famous annual Cherry Blossom festival in the heart of Washington, DC monument complex or the Mall. Check out the excited crowd in the video below:
The performance was so entertaining that the group was invited directly to perform at the Asian Heritage festival this coming May 22, 2010 at Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC with the Capitol Hill in the background view. The event committee even gave the group a privilege to choose their performance time during the prime time of the show.
One kick to this breakthrough of Reog Ponorogo among the international cultures in the America is that Fox5 News Channel will cover the show! This means more exposure to American audience.
Americans have long been accustomed to the Chinese Lion-Dragon we know as Barongsai. It’s now time to welcome the Indonesian Tiger!
